Obama holds three-point lead over Romney in new poll
 
NEW YORK, Sept 15, 2012 (BSS/AFP) - US President Barack Obama
is leading his Republican rival Mitt Romney by three points, even
though many Americans remain dissatisfied with the situation in
the country, a new opinion poll shows.

The survey joint survey by CBS News and the New York Times
showed that 49 percent of likely voters will support Obama in the
November 6 elections, while 46 percent gave their preference to
Romney.

Just four percent of those polled said they remained
undecided.

But when asked whether the country was doing better or worse
than four years ago, 36 percent said the United States was doing
better but 39 percent said things were worse.

According to the survey, Romney is preferred to Obama among
likely voters aged 65 and over, but the incumbent president leads
among younger voters.

Obama's lead among women voters is in double digits,
according to the poll, 53-41 percent.

But Romney holds a lead among men by 52 percent to 44
percent.

This poll was conducted by telephone from September 8-12
among 1,301 adults nationwide. It had a margin of sampling error
of plus or minus three percentage points.
